Plum Village has always had the interest of sharing the practice of mindfulness with children, so we would like to extend our invitation to friends who might like to contribute a helping hand to plant seeds of understanding and love in the future generation.
1. Arrival and Departure:
This year in the Summer Retreat 2017 we will offer a Children Program for each language as follows:
+ Program for German speaking children: from 22 July to 5 August (3rd and 4th week of the summer retreat)
+ Program for Dutch speaking children: from 29 July to 5 August (last week of the summer retreat)
Each program will be only one week. If you have experience in working with children, we would like to invite you to consider giving a helping hand in the above programs.
For German language, we ask you to come from 15 July and stay until 7 August in order to prepare the program with the sisters.
For Dutch language, from 22 July to 7 August in order to prepare the program with the sisters and help to clean up.
2. Contribution and Accommodation:
Please note that this year we have been required to make a change in our policy regarding contribution for stay as a volunteer. In France we are not allowed to offer food and board to volunteers, as it is considered a form of payment. So we ask you to contribute a minimum of 100 € for the whole stay to cover the vegetarian food as well as the use of water, electricity and so forth.
• All summer retreat volunteers are required to camp in a tent.• Please make a reservation online via www.plumvillage.org as soon as possible for the period according to the above requirement. • For male applicants, please provide a reference from your Sangha, an OI or Dharma Teacher, or a Plum Village monastic.
If you are interested to join us please fill out the form below. Be patient with us as it may take us a few weeks to get back to you.
